I Can't Even Blog Proper and I've Created a Second Instragram Account!?

I like the idea of using Instagram to share and sell my vintage and handmade items, so I thought I'd complicate the process and add a second Instagram account for this purpose - kikithespunkymunkyshops :) 

I finally figured out all I had to do was log out of Instagram and set up my new account with a different email. Duh. I had to resort to Google. Sad, but true. 

Now I need to learn myself how to connect all my accounts and post easily from site to site. Facebook (personal and business), Instagram (personal and business), Etsy, and Twitter. Whew. Not as regular: Pinterest, blog, Google+, Tumblr...lol. 


Keeper.
